18.1.4.1 What is New in MySQL Cluster NDB 7.3

The following improvements to MySQL Cluster have been made in MySQL Cluster NDB 7.3:

  • Based on MySQL Server 5.6.  MySQL Cluster NDB 7.3 is based on MySQL Server 5.6, so that MySQL Cluster users can benefit from MySQL 5.6's improvements in scalability and performance monitoring. As with MySQL 5.6, MySQL Cluster NDB 7.3 uses CMake for configuring and building from source. For more information about changes and improvements in MySQL 5.6, see Section 1.4, “What Is New in MySQL 5.6”.

  • Foreign keys.  Tables created using the NDB storage engine version 7.3.0 and later provide support for foreign key constraints. (This includes all MySQL Cluster NDB 7.3 releases.) For general information about how MySQL 5.6 and MySQL Cluster NDB 7.3 handle foreign keys, see Section 1.7.3.2, “FOREIGN KEY Constraints”. For syntax and related information, see Section 13.1.17, “CREATE TABLE Syntax”, and Section 13.1.17.3, “Using FOREIGN KEY Constraints”.

  • Node.js support.  MySQL Cluster NDB 7.3 also supports applications written in JavaScript using Node.js. The MySQL Connector for JavaScript includes adapters for direct access to the NDB storage engine and as well as for the MySQL Server. Applications using this Connector are typically event-driven and use a domain object model similar in many ways to that employed by ClusterJ. For more information, see MySQL NoSQL Connector for JavaScript.

MySQL Cluster NDB 7.3 is also supported by MySQL Cluster Manager, which provides an advanced command-line interface that can simplify many complex MySQL Cluster management tasks. See MySQL™ Cluster Manager 1.4.0 User Manual, for more information.
